Odyssey horn honks when I hit a bump while turning wheel

Asked by Jan 24, 2014 at 09:16 AM about the 2002 Honda Odyssey

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Weird thing has been happening with my 2002 Odyssey. If you're turning the wheel and hit some kind of bump (ie, a thick seam in the pavement while turning into a parking lot) the horn will honk briefly. Sounds like someone just does a quick tap to the horn. It's been happening for a few months now, but the sound seems to be getting a bit louder and more repetitions (i.e. 3 quick honks instead of the one low honk when it first started). Any idea what could be causing this?
